Mary’s Well is found just below the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation in modern-day Nazareth.
The well was positioned over an underground spring that served for centuries as a local watering hole for the Arab villagers.

The well was renovated twice, once in 1967 and once in 2000. The current structure is a symbolic representation of the structure that was once in use, and surrounds it a small garden.

"Mary's Well" or "Ain Maryam", as the locals call it, had been so named since "time immemorial" and that it provided as the city’s main water source for Nazareth Residents and Traverlers.

"Only worth a visit if passing by"
24 June 2017
This relatively modern edifice is supposed to be over Mary's well. There is nothing old to see here.
"For Christians it's a must"

The well is actually also a church. A beautiful one indeed. So the "well" is 20 meters away from the old church
"Very underwhelming"

While the square around the well has a nice, laid-back atmosphere, the sight itself is not very impressive. It is not even the original thing and there are no explanations whatsoever.
